Arsenal have left contract rebel Theo Walcott out of their 2013 calendar.

The Sun says Bacary Sagna, also in drawn-out contract talks, is another absent from the official calendar.

Walcott, 23, is nowhere to be seen in next year’s version after failing to commit his future to the Gunners. The England winger, whose current £65,000-a-week contract expires in June, has snubbed the North London outfit’s offer of a new £80,000-a-week deal.

That has alerted rival Premier League clubs Liverpool and Manchester City, who are believed to be willing to pay Arsenal £15million for him in next month’s transfer window.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has stated publicly he wants and expects Walcott to sign a new deal with his club.

But many believe the writing is now on the wall after the ace was left out of the calendar.
